Electorates in Mt. Elgon Constituency of Bungoma County have been challenged to vote in leaders with good integrity test results, leaders who will propel development and unity among the different communities living in the region.
Addressing residents of Kaptama, Kraido Morongo alias Advocate, who is seeking the Mt. Elgon Constituency seat under The Service Party (TSP), said he is ready to serve the people of Mt. Elgon.
His agenda includes petitioning the national government through parliament to ensure locals who have lived for decades without land title deeds have the document. Kraido said the land documents will help them access loans from the financial institutions to boost locals economically through businesses and agriculture.
He also promised residents that his administration will ensure every student from vulnerable families gets a bursary without discrimination, and equip the boda boda sector, youths, women and widows to be self-reliant.
He also said that he will ensure contracts from the National Government Constituency Development Funds (NG-CDF) will be given to locals with registered companies within the constituency.
He further said that his administration will give powers to the electorates through participatory leadership to decide on projects that will be given first priority in the area.
Advocate Morongo will compete with incumbent MP Fred Kapondi (UDA), Allan Chemayiek (independent) and 10 others.
